Issues changing Workload Balancing servers


XenCenter 2023.x.x is currently in preview and is not supported for production use. Note that any future references to production support apply only when XenCenter 2023.x.x and XenServer 8 go from preview status to general availability.

You can use XenCenter 2023.x.x to manage your XenServer 8 and Citrix Hypervisor 8.2 CU1 non-production environments. However, to manage your Citrix Hypervisor 8.2 CU1 production environment, use XenCenter 8.2.7. For more information, see the XenCenter 8.2.7 documentation.

You can install XenCenter 8.2.7 and XenCenter 2023.x.x on the same system. Installing XenCenter 2023.x.x does not overwrite your XenCenter 8.2.7 installation.

If you connect a pool to a different Workload Balancing virtual appliance without first disconnecting the pool from the original Workload Balancing appliance, both appliances monitor the pool.

To solve this problem, you can do one of the following actions:

  • Shut down and delete the old Workload Balancing appliance
  • Manually stop the Workload Balancing services (analysis, data collector, and Web service) so that the appliance no longer monitors the pool

Citrix does not recommend using the pool-initialize-wlb xe command to remove or change the Workload Balancing server configuration.
